The Century SP Carp Rods have progressively evolved through casting World Record distances to successfully handling World Record fish. The Century SP Carp Rods have now been taken a stage further with the introduction of several improvements which deliver considerable benefits to the owner.
Over the past decade there have been several technical advances in composite fibre and resin matrix technology and the best of these have been incorporated into the Century SP Carp Rods. The carbon patterns are cut using a CAD CAM machine that holds extremely tight tolerances and this ensures the action and test curve is faithfully reproduced from rod to rod. Additionally, SPs are subject to Century's Autoclave Technology curing process which significantly reduces test curve decay. New to the latest generation of SPs is Centurys Anti Twist Technology which involves winding very fine carbon fibre prepreg around the internal circumference of the blank which radically assists ring alignment during the cast. Century have used this technology to generate the longest casts ever made with a rod at international tournaments.
The Century SP Carp Rods has benefited from advances in low density resins that bind the carbon fibre together and most importantly carry the load between the fibres. Low resin contents are great for poles where the loading is small but for highly dynamic long range rods very low resin contents can mean reduced performance. If there is insufficient resin the load between the fibres cannot be adequately carried.
The balance and diameter of the Century SP Carp Rods is improved and with Centurys low scratch PTFE/Silicone finish the look is sensational. The Century SP Carp Rods is fitted with a SB20 engraved, part stainless custom reel seat and features woven 3k-3k carbon below the seat and Cytec1k-1k above the seat - up to the first ring on the tip. The surface finish is matt and sealed with PTFE/Silicone. All rods are supplied with size 50 ringing configurations. High tensile solid carbon spigot joint. Also featured is the Steve Neville stainless steel ball butt stop.
The SU model is ideal for long range fishing without the need for a shockleader.
